Hey everyone. Been reading the X-Men Volume 2 (1991) run since I got into comics at the start of DC's New 52. I was able to obtain almost all issues of this volume (missing some of the recent), so I have been going on for quite an adventure reading all these issues. I first stopped around issues in the 40s as I decided I would need to find out what the Age of Apocalypse was all about (and awaited the Omnibus to release). I resumed reading and have been since and now I am on issue 113. The last part of Eve of Destruction and soon the beginning of Grant Morrison's New X-Men. I have also obtained a great majority of the Astonishing X-Men (Joss Whedon), again missing more recent issues. As well as the 8 issue House of M arc.
So I present to you all in a SPOILER FREE thread (please) with a question on how I should go about reading these issues in what order?
As it seems to say on the Comic Vine wiki page on X-Men (team) the Astonishing X-Men (Joss) begins after New X-Men (Morrison). That's fine but Astonishing's first 4 story arcs seem to be "Gifted", "Dangerous", "Torn" and "Unstoppable", but "Unstoppable" seems to be after House of M and Decimation (again, I'm looking at the Major Storylines list, which from what I have read so far has led me to believe that this list order is correct). If this is true, where do I stop Astonishing to go to House of M?
This is the first time I've found myself in this situation as there are not only the problem of figuring out order, but with multiple ongoing series, how do you guys keep pace when there are no obvious crossover indications of where what issue you should be at?
